Once again, PlayStation Vue is giving away free upgrades to its Elite package. Several readers today told Cord Cutters News that they an email from Sony about the additional channels in their PlayStation Vue app. This is not the first time that Sony has given away free upgrades to their Elite package as they have a history of handing out random upgrades running from a weekend to 6 months in length.
This upgrade will give lucky PlayStation Vue subscribers access to the $54.99 a month Elite plan that includes 90-plus HD channels. After the free upgrade ends, subscribers will automatically be returned to the plan they had before the free upgrade. According to our readers, the upgrade to the Elite package will end in September 2018.
Here is the email from Sony about the upgrade:
Thank you for your ongoing subscription to PlayStation™Vue. As a valued PlayStation™Vue subscriber, please enjoy a FREE six-month upgrade to Elite! The Elite plan has something for everyone, with dozens of additional sports, kids, movie and news channels to stream including NFL Network, FXM, MLB Network, Nat Geo Wild, Universal Kids, and more.
This free upgrade will expire on September 27, 2018. After the upgrade expires, you will automatically return to the channels in the Access plan… that is, unless you decide to upgrade and keep the Elite plan.
Thank you, The PlayStation™ Vue team
Sony still has not commented on how it is picking which PlayStation Vue subscribers will get the upgrade. For now the selection seems to be almost at random because we first suspected that former Slim subscribers got the upgrade in exchange for the upcoming price hike; however, other readers say they already pay the higher price and still got the free upgrade.
